Five hikers had to be rescued from Bluff mountain a mile and a half from Lemon Gap. Hope you're doing much better than they.
Ahh I heard about this! They weren’t thru hikers, just out for spring break. Sounds like they weren’t ready for the snow. It has been pretty brutal, especially in this area. A few thru hikers I know were stranded near Gatlinburg when the snow hit. We were able to get off the mountain in time, but the rangers had to pull a few off.
Hey there! So last fall I wrote you about how hiking saved my life and how it gives me reason to live. Well, I start a section hike of the AT in May. I'm going from GA to VA state line at Damascus. I know it's probably a long shot but I hope I run into you!
I will be farther north by then, but I hope you have the time of your life. Enjoy, safe travels, and happy hikin :)
